Nah, I don't think that had anything to do with it.it was probably to show to leave him alone.
Awesome post. I completely agree!The book mentions that the Bravossi style Syrio fights with uses a smaller sword with a thinner blade, like the one Jon gave Arya. My assumption has been that the heavy longswords would slow him down so much that he just didn't bother. Though it is strange that he's totally unarmed, considering pretty much everyone else is walking around with multiple pieces of steel.
BTW, the book version of the fight contains considerably more ownage than was shown in the show.
Of the 5 men who attack Syrio before the knight:
* #1 gets a shattered wrist and kneecap
* #2 is stabbed through the eye
* #3 gets a crushed thoat
* #4 is nearly beheaded by an ally's strike that Syrio dodges
* #5 is knocked out by a boot to the face
Dunno, but a lot of people are just getting into GRRM because they like the series. The books take a long time to read and when people start posting about things in the later books it's frustrating. This thread's about the series and anything beyond AGoT is a spoiler that should at least be in tags, probably in a separate thread.I wonder, did we do the same for the LotR movie series? Harry Potter?
Pretty good episode.
I hopeDrogo is ok, but I guess not since they entered the tent... I'm also beginning to like the little blonde twink king, he does things for teh lulz.
Spoilers on your second comment:An interesting consequence of entering the tent might be the baby she is giving birth too will some how get caught up in that blood magic spell that was cast. Hell Spawn?
Also, I have a feeling the Queen orchestrated that whole thing and was just putting on a look of shock when the twink flipped.
